For the being of a similar name see: Reaper

The Grim Reaper is a representation of Death that appears in the mythology of many cultures of the planet Earth. Early woodcuts show a Weevil in a shroud and scythe, implying that the idea of the Grim Reapers came from Humans having associated the Weevils with death. In 1470 in Cardiff, Durac, seemingly a representation of Death who resembled a walking skeleton, appeared. (TW: Dead Man Walking)

In 1666 Heathrow, Terileptils dressed up their android as the Grim Reaper and armed it with a scythe to terrify superstitious Humans. (DW: The Visitation)

The Grim Reaper also appears on the Death card of the Tarot.

Other information

The appearance of the Reapers has some similarity to that of the Grim Reaper.

Up to date as of February 01, 2010

From Final Fantasy Wiki

The following article is based on a subject that has not been officially named in any official Square Enix material; the current title is merely a placeholder.

The Grim Reaper is a recurring element in the series. Its appearance differs in every installment, but they share a distinct similarity, they are summoned whenever someone uses Death or Doom, more frequently the former.

Appearances

Final Fantasy

Final Fantasy

The Grim Reaper in its first appearance was summoned through the spell Death (called RUB in the NES version and Reaper in the Origins version). A skeletal figure wearing a red cape appears, beckoning the target's soul and slicing it downwards with its scythe. Or, if using another spell, throws back his cloak, and four skulls come out, attach to the soul, and fly upwards.

Final Fantasy IV

Final Fantasy IV

The Black Magic spells Doom and Death summon the Reaper upon the target. Here, the Reaper appears shrouded in black, a skull with red eyes, and carries a dark scythe.

Final Fantasy V

Final Fantasy V

The Blue Magic Doom summons the Reaper. Hitodama will appear around the target, followed by the Grim Reaper who will float away. The Reaper is dressed in faded red robes and carrying a silver colored scythe. It also appears when the player uses Predict and it has the Pestilence effect.

Final Fantasy VI

Final Fantasy VI

The Death spell summons the Reaper. Again in its red cloak and a scythe, it appears out of thin air and carries the target's soul skywards while laughing.

Final Fantasy VII

Final Fantasy VII

The Death spell from the Destruct Materia (also seen in Cait Sith's attack "Game Over" from his "Slots" Limit Break) summons the Reaper. Black smoke blows from above, and out of it the Reaper appears wearing its red cloak. It swings its scythe across the target. Note that this is the only way to summon the Reaper; other Death spells such as Doom summons an elongated skull instead.

Final Fantasy VIII

Final Fantasy VIII

The Reaper's appearances differ, with its color scheme being black, red, and purple. It has a dark mouthless head, and wears a horned skull on it. Its back has bat-like wings, and its red hands carry a darkened scythe. Summoned using both the spell Death and the command Doom.

Final Fantasy IX

Final Fantasy IX

Here, the Reaper wears brownish robes with a skull as its head. It appears with three spells, Lv5 Death, Death, and Doom.

Final Fantasy X

Final Fantasy X

The Reaper's appearance is similar to the Malaysian penanggal: a bodiless shriveled head. It wears a horned headdress and a cape, and has only a clawed left hand. With that clawed hand it reaches into the target, extracting its soul and crushing it, killing the target.

Final Fantasy Versus XIII

Final Fantasy Versus XIII

A Goddess of Death is present in the mythology of the game. A painting depicting her has been featured in recent scans. She looks similar to the character depicted on the logo of the Fabula Nova Crystallis: Final Fantasy XIII.

Final Fantasy Tactics Advance

Final Fantasy Tactics Advance

Grim Reaper appears when the Doom counter reaches zero. It will appear above the target, laugh maniacally and then draws the target's soul towards it, KOing them.

Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift

Final Fantasy Tactics A2

A bunch of Reapers fly over the battlefield, which turns red.

A detailed view of the Grim Reaper.
The Grim Reaper's office.

The realm of the Grim Reaper is accessed when new players die for the first time. In effect, he acts as the "death tutor". The Reaper will explain about death, item losses, and gravestones. The player may exit at any time through the exit portal. One's gravestone's timer is paused whilst one is within the dimension of the Reaper. The player is, at this time, "dead". The player is only allowed this one time, the first time they die, though they apparently pass through this every time upon death.

The Grim Reaper was part of the 2007 Halloween event and 2009 Halloween event. He owned a house located in the Dark House Portal south of Falador near Malignius Mortifer. He ordered the player to do his house chores because his servant has recently passed away from the Grim Reaper's death touch. One of the first tasks the player had to do was to find the skull of the servant in the Grim Reaper's Garden. The next task was to reorganise his items in the correct spot in the western room. By using his diary, the player could effectively put his items in order. Afterwards, the Grim Reaper told the player to try out his obstacle course on the second floor, used to keep his servants on their toes. The player had to do this twice, and after that, he had to talk to the Grim Reaper to receive the Grim Reaper Hood and a new Zombie Hand emote (and the Scared emote if the player was not present for the 2005 or 2006 events).

The obstacle course involved in this event was very similar to an agility course. Similar to how the Easter 2008 event involving a chocatrice gave free players a look into Summoning or how the Easter 2009 event involving catching Easter Implings gave free players a look in Hunter, this gave free players a look into Agility.

Temple Knights' Dossier of Grim Reaper

The following text was published on Postbag from the Hedge #35
In the Postbag it said:

The Wise Old Man has been at it again, leaving documents on his desk for any passing skull to look at. He didn't seem to mind me publishing the last Temple Knight's dossier, so please enjoy some notes about another of Draynor's VIPs, the Grim Reaper.

The dossier

Subject: 'Grim Reaper, The'

Status: Under surveillance

Level: MAROON MENACE

Estimated Threat Level: TERMINAL

Age: Infinite

Gender: Male

Place of Birth: Unknown

Aliases:

  • Death
  • Destroyer of Life
  • Nigel

Distinguishing Features:

  • Scythe
  • Robes
  • Underweight

Known Affiliates

The Grim Reaper has many, many, many affiliates. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the Reaper's crimes, none of these affiliates (aka victims) are available for comment at this time. Our agents are developing a new sort of commorb that would allow us to conduct interviews with some of the suspect's victims. The Grim Reaper occasionally recruits a servant for his headquarters, but once employed, they are never heard from again. GR's most faithful companion is a skeletal hellhound that answers to the name 'Muncher'. Muncher is highly dangerous and should be approached with extreme caution. Eye-witnesses have reported numerous occurrences of adventurers being killed after attempting to stroke the hellhound.

Personality

Few agents have been able to spend enough time in the Grim Reaper's presence to learn about his personality. Intelligence has been able to recover a document code-named 'Death Diary'. Said document contains evidence from the Reaper himself, in the form of diary entries. The diary suggests that the Grim Reaper is clumsy, often causing damage to objects and beasts without intending to. The Reaper appears to care deeply about his work, and he does not have enough free time to keep his headquarters in a hygienic state.

Distinct Talents

The suspect's most worrying skill is, without a doubt, his ability to reap living souls. GR is RuneScape's most talented reaper; in fact, his customary black robes are no ordinary vestments, but the legendary Reaper skillcape. In the darker times of RuneScape, the Grim Reaper was revered for being the greatest reaper in all the lands. During this period, he gained large amounts of publicity. At the height of his fame, the GR toured Gielinor, wowing crowds with his talents and his catchphrase of 'Gotta reap 'em all'. The catchphrase even featured on a lucrative range of reaping-themed merchandise, little of which has survived to the present day. GR's celebrity was relatively short-lived, and nowadays he is much more reclusive, no longer performing public reapings.

In addition to reaping, the Grim Reaper has a keen interest in campanology. The suspect is the undisputed world champion of belltolling. His title has remained undisputed for many years, simply because no-one dares to challenge him. At his last competition, no judge, competitor or crowd member survived. GR was declared winner by default, as reported by the only surviving witness, a zombie that happened to be passing on its way to terrorise a local village.

This image was contained within the dossier. An artist's impression, perhaps?

History

Our investigation has revealed that the Grim Reaper has been ‘alive’ for many centuries. Some say that he is immortal; others say that he is simply undead. All agree that he performs a necessary but terrifying function, and that RuneScape would be a very different place without him. Recommended Action: Careful surveillance, from a safe distance. When modified commorb is complete, use it to communicate with the suspect’s past associates.

Conclusions about the Dossier

Affiliates section:

  • 1) Grim Reaper kills all people who associate with him. By accident or not is not revealed.
  • 2) Grim Reaper has had several servants who all have died.
  • 3) Temple Knights are developing an object that would somehow allow you to speak to the dead.

Personality section:

  • 1) Temple Knights have discovered that Grim Reaper has a diary. They have potentially stolen it.
  • 2) Diary (apparently) informs that GR is so devoted to his work he doesn't even have spare time to 'keep his headquarters in a hygienic state'. Halloween is once a year. So what is he doing all the year so devotedly?

Distinct Talents section:

  • 1) GR's 'vestment' is not just any suit. It is the Legendary Reaper Skillcape. Apparently it is inherited from his mother, as the picture of him showed a painting of his mother in the letter with his mother wearing similar outfit.
  • 2) GR is also a World Champion of Belltolling. No-one survived from the competition.

History section:

  • 1) Grim Reaper is many centuries old.
  • 2) Grim Reaper is still on 'Careful surveillance, from safe distance.'
The Grim Reaper's combat level is 1.

Trivia

"I have died!?!"
  • There is another NPC, Death, who may or may not be the same person as the Grim Reaper. It is unknown what relation, if any, the Grim Reaper has with Death.
  • In certain circumstances, it is possible to see his combat level.
  • A Postbag from the Hedge later revealed that the Grim Reaper has the catch phrase, "Gotta reap 'em all." This is a pun on the catch phrase "Gotta catch 'em all" from Pokémon.
  • In the same Postbag from the Hedge it was said his customary black robes act as the legendary Reaper skillcape.
  • It was unclear what connection the Reaper has with the RuneScape gods for a long time until the release of the 2009 Hallowe'en event. It appears that the entire event is based on keeping within the Edicts of Guthix, which proclaims that the Grim reaper must have a hood, robes, a scythe, a skeletal form and have a spooky domain which must have spiderwebs as decoration.
  • During Halloween 2007, if a player read the Varrock Herald it would mention a man in black robes wandering around RuneScape stealing peoples lives.
  • When talking to the Grim Reaper the player goes slightly mad at the fact that they have died and does a unique chathead animation.(only found elsewhere in the quest rune mecantics)
  • During the 2009 Hallowe'en event, the Grim Reaper does the coin roll with a death rune in his left hand.
  • The grim Reaper is the one of the few npc's to have their fingers shown on their body. The other npc's with fingers are: Crawling Hand, Creeping hand, Zombie hand, and glod.
  • According to the dossier, the Grim Reaper was the Champion of a Belltolling contest, but nobody survived. The only witness was a "zombie" about to terrorise the near town. This could mean that the Wise Old Man was in disguise as a zombie.

The Grim Reaper was a common name given to the human personification of death. The Reaper is often shown to be a skeletal figure donned in a black hooded robe and carrying a scythe.

Following the Hyralan Incident, Jonathan Masters would have frequent nightmares reliving the events that often ended with a visit from a dark figure that identified itself as "death". In 2372, when Commander Ivan Domique invaded his mind Domique took on the guise of "death" to keep Masters off balance. When Masters realised that something was amiss and fought back he commented on Domique choosing a sword as a weapon instead of the traditional scythe. (Star Trek: Swiftfire: "The Darkness Within")

Location: Drefia Grim Reaper Dungeons (next to Vampire Hell), deep in Wyrms (after the Medusa Shield Quest), Edron (Hero Cave), and Yalahar (Cemetery Quarter).
Strategy: Treat them like a stronger Behemoth, or a Fury. Knights will most likely waste here without a healer and a shooter. Take lots of healing potions as they have a high average damage per turn. Mages can use Fireball runes, stay always with Magic Shield and perhaps some instant attack spells like Exori flam. Use Fire fields or Firewalls, to help keep them away from shooters/healers.
